Really difficult thing to say but.. it’s blocking the other port!


Spiral83

*Psycho Mantis enters the chat*


Jaythamalo13

Yea but let's be honest, Ryan isn't playing anything on this thing


wellgroomedpotato

That’s the sad part


harrisbradley

Jim Ryan games for sure. He won't play on this specific console because it's going on display and he can play on the handful of consoles he already has.


wellgroomedpotato

We’re talking about the same guy right? This guy is responsible for games transforming into live service bs. He mocked retro games like ps1 because the graphics sucked. He’s a business man, not a gamer.


shutupdotca

You think he invented live service games? Playstation has got far more PS1 games under him than the previous CEO. He can be both and realize that having successful live service games can be good for the conpany


OkayRuin

I would pay upwards of $12 for that cable.


Kotvic2

I have 3d printer. Will make my own version of this someday.


fakemessiah

How about that other port tho, is it being blocked?


J_Speedy306

Just buy multi-tap


w_d_roll_RIP

Since nobody has mentioned it, looks like it’s blocking the other front port


Sonikku_a

Does seem to be blocking the other front port tho, it does look nice


[deleted]

DID YOU NOTICE THE PORT IS BLOCKED!? ![gif](emote|free_emotes_pack|poop)


archabaddon

Blocka blocka blocka ![gif](giphy|CdwvDXD6bqCcw)


indiekid6

It does look nice, but does seem to be blocking the front port tho


Beaugerking

Its exquisite, but art thou usb c cable blocking thy compartment?


fartingmaniac

Looks cool but seems it may be of port is block in front of. Could be?


clarke41

port block


1LakeShow7

port is port blocking


luke111mart

Does seem to be blocking the other front port tho, but it does look nice


iloveeeeemycat

Does seem to be blocking the other front port tho, but it does look nice

heybudbud

If they sold that controller, I would buy two of them instantly. It's money waiting to be made, Sony, make it fucking happen.


deadxguero

I use to have the PS4 version. Buddy of mine accidently broke it 😭


Crash_Bandicock

I accidentally broke mine :(


monotoonz

As did I. I'm starting to think they were made poorly 😒


aarplain

Mine is busted too. I put it back in the package and just display it.


LeohAntonio47

Someone STOLE mine😭😭


real-dreamer

They made this? I didn't know this is made.


InternetDad

I really wish Sony had a design lab for their controllers like Microsoft.

k2bandit

This is the way


el-dongler

$150-$250... lol no this is not the way.


Core2009

Just make the end mini PS1 connectors. So it won't take up both ports & sold edit to show I want these just as bad as heybudbud 😁


heybudbud

I'm not talking about the charging cord, I'm talking about the actual controller.


firewarrior256

On my ps4 I put a ps1 theme on there so when it boots up you here that iconic ps1 start up sequence.


CorgiDad017

Good luck, they would make it limited edition and scalpers would buy them all to mari them up 200% and sell to rich kids on eBay. Normal people with jobs would have zero chances lol


NotTheRocketman

That special charging cable is a really slick touch.


siccoblue

No kidding that is so dope


a-m-i-g-o

Don’t know why they don’t sell this… money waiting to be made


Sonikku_a

Wouldn’t surprise me if they did something similar for consumers next year, since it’ll be the 30th Anniversary of the PS1 release


TheScaleTipper

Yeah honestly sharing occasional photos like this to build hype towards a themed release is a great marketing strategy. Wouldn’t surprise me if that’s the plan.


a-m-i-g-o

This is what I hope haha


Truethrowawaychest1

Honestly I'd like a solid black PS5, I don't know why they changed the design so much


DarkOstrava

correct me if im wrong. but wasn't it Jim who said "why do people play old games?" ... if so it would make this very ironic.


impuritor

He worked for PlayStation during the psone era


shutupdotca

Also PS now plays far more PS1 games than it with previous the previous CEO


PieSeveral9815

Huhhhh where? Prolly gotta stream it anyway, so yep not happening


shutupdotca

You can download a bunch of PS1 games on PS4/PS5. They add new ones every month. No you dont have to stream


banana_man_777

I mean, its literally a ps5. He was around for the ps1 Era, so it's a flashback and callback to his time at the company, a little bit of nostalgia feel good. But it literally is a ps5.


mrsw2092

It's ironic that the PS executive that is quoted saying "who would want to play those games" in reference to ps1 games gets a ps1 style ps5. I really hope they make it available to the general public. The ps1 style box is a nice touch.


EleanorTrashBag

I'd give Sony $100 for that controller. What a beaut.


OwlTowel9

Let’s not give them any ideas. It’s worth £60 like the rest of the controllers. (Or dollar equivalent)


GuyBitchie

It's worth 20€, it's just sold for 60€.


OwlTowel9

This is actually correct ☝️


SplatoonOrSky

The DualSense is pretty damn expensive but there’s a lot of tech in those controllers. I don’t want to seem like I’m simping for the billion dollar company (they should definitely improve the quality of the sticks to prevent drifting) but is it really only worth $20?


potatohands_

👆


Darkray117

The man doesn’t play games. But it’s a nice ornament.


cochrane210

Why does this not exist for the consumer? This is literally leaving money on the table.


Sonikku_a

Next year is the 30th Anniversary of the PS1 release, wouldn’t surprise me if they’re waiting for that and will do a special console. They did for the PS4 for the 20th Anniversary. https://preview.redd.it/p9hfowhvjw4c1.jpeg?width=1290&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=dab3167b5149c376ab9d1f7841598048f214c36c

It's a shame that they gifted this to Jim after the allegations


StarryChocobo

Wow!😍


TiredReader87

I want that controller


Skc143psu

Some third parties make them


TiredReader87

No thanks


Skc143psu

They’re actual Sony ps5 controllers, the 3rd party just uses custom colored plastics, buttons, etc. I shoulda explained better.


Soccerpl

I need that controller


Iamcheez

oh god, just release this controller to the public ffs


flcinusa

Sell 👏 those 👏 plates 👏 and 👏 controllers 👏


hypespud

He likely got a lot more from his retirement! 💸💸💸 Haters can hate, but his tenure is over the most successful period of PlayStation Of course it stands on the shoulders of Kaz Hirai before him as PlayStation and Sony CEO, can't diminish either contribution


mrsw2092

It's easy to be successful when you dont have competition.


PieSeveral9815

Xbox?


TnVGaming

Kaz Hiram & Jack Tretton were forces to be reckoned with. Though I Shawn Layden & Andrew House were awesome too.


hypespud

Agree they were all good Some of them were part of faltering through early ps3 but they all learned from it and were all better for it imo


wellgroomedpotato

He did nothing but make poor decisions and took credit for things he had no part of. Yes, I will keep hating.


Sega-Forever

That’s not a usb-c connector is it?


Kotvic2

USB - A to USB - C Just standard USB cable that is bundled with every Playstation, but this one has decorative piece molded/glued on USB - A side to resemble Playstation controller port.


Sega-Forever

The PS5 is bundled with a dual USB-C cable.


Crotalus-Viridis

Slims got the dual usb c Originals have the standard cable


Sega-Forever

Oh I see, sorry for the confusion


TrashAffectionate177

No it's not.


FunDiggle

Slim is. Idk abt the fat.


iantot123

why is this not a thing? maybe when ps5 pro comes out , and they try to phase out the PS5 they’ll do this…


SwordsOfWar

Damn. They could have at least have him the DualSense Edge version. Come on PlayStation!


HiCZoK

Now.... why in the hell wouldn't sony want to sell that? LIKE WTF


smoothcasper

He’s special until they release it as a limited edition for everyone else that wants one. 😅


Silken87

Nice!


Iohet

I don't know why but it frustrates me when people call it PS1. It's PSX.


Camman1

The man who thinks people don’t want to play old games


jbg0830

Aaaaaaaaand why don’t they do this for us???


ThePornRater

They need to start doing more retro/anniversary releases. I used the anniversary theme on my ps4 forever. PS1 style and PS2 style look so good.


theboxturtle57

We need ps1 plates


auzzie_kangaroo94

Well next year is the 30th Anniversary of PS1


ender89

Did they gift him a custom *digital only* PS5? That's like wrapping a Toyota Corolla. What cheapskates!


ChasingPesmerga

It’s because he’s already leaving physically


v5n60branch177

Good lord that console and controller are beautiful.


[deleted]

Hot take: Jim Ryan built PlayStation up into the juggernaut it is today and put it in a place to be well ahead of its greatest competitor.


Thescottishguy87

Memory card shaped usb is the coolest thing about the ps1 themed ps5


theycmeroll

that’s what the plug on the PS1 controller looked like so it’s emulating that. https://preview.redd.it/bbws9ybb7x4c1.jpeg?width=266&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=95367fd1c391744e1b1b4cc74548b4de4727d75a


Bloodymike

Controller is cool. USB is cool. The console is ugly. It should be matte like the ps1.


TLaMagna319

Sell this and I’ll buy another ps5


Legospacememe

That controller plug looks like the playstation classic controller plug https://preview.redd.it/ywi4l5pcbw4c1.jpeg?width=4032&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=e742f20099440b73efa243dbd4dcd8ab4869d328


LegendaryBlue

I would part way with stupid money for that controller


Normal-Raspberry-5

The other port is blocked tho it's really cool though! 😎


Choice-Magician7277

MoFo is leaving a mess behind and gets this 🫠


Vampirebearz

Jim Ryan doesn’t deserve it.


World-Three

Couldn't get him a slim? lol


Sonikku_a

My own is grayer lol https://preview.redd.it/g4yp7ne7dw4c1.jpeg?width=3024&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=647026e8489d14232cb9afc950049a2c2af4a35f


joohunter420

How?!!


Sonikku_a

Bought some gray third party plates online, got a colored Logo buttons sticker for the side, another colored PS logo sticker for the front, replacement Sony badge (for a TV) that I stuck on the play also, then a whole ass controller shell and button replacment https://preview.redd.it/57vwkjlciw4c1.jpeg?width=4032&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=6b88d217e22470dba4b1dff6a2670fb456e91b95


tesrella

Who?


gabrielleraul

Where?


Kak0r0t

Gonna need that to release now also a PS2 themed version a PS3 themed version


artfulpain

If you open port 80, it will charge faster.


TheS3KT

Kinda a slap in the face when he gifted the rest of the world price hikes and a poor value subscription service.


Luna259

He probably threw it straight in the bin. In his own words, this looks terrible, who would want to play this. >! I don’t think this looks terrible!<


Postisto

Too bad dude do not play games lol


MIGGYME87

Ugly as fuck and it aint even the slim model. Smh


Xerolaw_

Frfr


JooshMaGoosh

Let's be real it's just gaming journos making this a big deal. It's fuckin ugly and looks nothing like a PS1 (not in design in color) aside from that usb-c cover. Maybe I'm wrong but first ps1 in NA was all grey (not sure on the jp one I think it was white and rounded no?) The side covers should be grey, make the middle strip white or black. Controller, grey. If you need a two tone make it grey w black as well. This is a very easy color scheme to pull off. Edit: I am mildly colorblind. Though I'm pretty sure it's just blues & purples... You can't be colorblind to grey & white right?


[deleted]

I N E E D that controller.


Basedgod1017

Still got the ps4 version they need to make a ps5 version immediately


B_mico

That sexy controller!


Beanerschnitzels

I'm waiting for that controller to be released officially!


BilboThe1stOfHisName

Gimmie that controller and USB cable!


TheRealLordofLords

Wtf. They need to sell that.


beyondmereum

I’m jealous. So very jealous.


kobekong

Sexy controller.


OhGeEvz

I want one 😿


Xerolaw_

I know some of you like this, but it's hideous


ModOverlords

That’s dope


sixmileswest

I'm more impressed with the updated OG box.


Retro_Wiktor

I bet he's going to use it A LOT


Zeba93

Omg I need that controller


gkeiser23

They need to official release this! As well as a PS2 and 3 theme!


DinnerSmall4216

Would buy if it was at retail the ps1 is my fav system of all time.


Remytron83

He doesn’t appreciate “retro” things.


Megaverso

Oh my ! I would pay premium price for that controller on second one.


melloack

I want that controller so bad


TheKingofWakanda

Would be cool if for PS6 they went with a retro look and design. Both the console, the cables, controller, box, etc I mean purely aesthetics, not actual functional design


oxid1zer

This is gorgeous.


buzzyingbee

That DualSense is a thing of beauty! I need it.


PrestigiousGrab6455

LOVE. IT.


MrNiceGuy233012

I really hope that Sony releases a 30th anniversary PlayStation 5 like this! I'd buy it in an instant! I want that!!


SilentPhilosopher99_

seymourbuttz214

Haha I want it Well especially the controller


VirtuaFighter6

Significant-Task-721

Taesf

wolfenmaara

That controller with the color is so sick!


The_Frozen_Inferno

Sell me that controller Sony


tha_dank

Couldn’t even give him the disc version :))


gknight702

I miss the colored buttons 🥲


Ragna_Blade

A PS1 theme? To paraphrase Jim Ryan "Who the hell plays this primitive garbage!? Live Service games are the only way to game and anything before should not be remembered you dumb shits!"


Alienpedestrian

I would like to have one


postALEXpress

I WANT THAT! I WANT THAT! I WANT THAT!


Luckycharmander18

Y’all think bro even plays games 💀


CosmicCee

LET ME BUY THIS SONY 😭


bleachigo101

It hasn’t been mentioned yet but usb port being blocked…”and I don’t know if you know this,but you can put your weed in there” 🤣🤣🤣🤣


magicmichael98

Do they sell that controller online? It looks cool!


spadePerfect

I never buy special controllers. I would instantly buy that controller.


gregor630

Give it to me now


Candlefire21

For someone who worked for a long time, this is probably the best gift for ‘em.


Genesiga

That's soooo cool for sure one of a kind does it secretly have there ps5 pro mods inside though is the real question?


Cold_Singer_1774

Now thats a cable and controller I would go and wait in store!


Ikovorior

Sony, wtf. Release this right now. Right. Now.


Aurelius5150

I normally don't go for special edition consoles but I would buy one of these in a heartbeat.


Rop394

And I need it right now...


ViloDivan

Is it just me or is the stand different too? Not the stock one or the one they want you to buy


LeohAntonio47

What I would give for that controller


TropicalTuna11

Now thats hot


PM_ME_UR_TA--TAS

Must be nice.

D1ckRepellent

This is beautiful!! 😍


Low_Sign_7873

This… please Sony…. PLEASE!!!


real-dreamer

How much for the controller and case? I want to buy it.


VicarLos

They should sell the plates and controllers. I’d legit buy the plates. The grey middle part is cute but I don’t feel the desire to run out and buy another just for it.


vlapipo

Why? The guy doesn’t play games at all…


Dcm210

Damn it I want that one instead of the MWIII edition I just got.
